When a person creates an original work that is fixed in a physical medium, that person automatically owns copyright to the work. Copyright ownership gives the owner the exclusive right to use the work in certain, specific ways. Many types of works are eligible for copyright protection, including audiovisual words, sound recordings and musical compositions, written works, visual works, video games and computer software, and dramatic works.
In some circumstances, it is possible to use a copyrighted work without infringing the owner’s copyright. For example, in the United States, copyrights are limited by the doctrine of “fair use,” which permits certain uses of copyrighted material, such as parody, satire, and social commentary.
Gift-olution accepts unsolicited designs from independent artists who are informed and have agreed to Gift-olution’s policies concerning the intellectual property rights of others. All designs selected by Gift-olution are new, original, and/or transformative works that may parody, satirize, or provide social commentary on other copyrighted works. Gift-olution and the selected designs make only fair use of the copyrighted works of others. Gift-olution respects the copyrights of others, and Gift-olution is not affiliated with the owners of the copyrights to which the selected designs may refer.
It is Gift-olution’s policy to respond to notices of alleged infringement that comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), 17 U.S.C. § 512, and other applicable laws. Gift-olution’s response may include removing or disabling access to a design claimed to be infringing. If Gift-olution removes or disables access in response to such a notice, Gift-olution will make a good-faith attempt to contact the independent artist who submitted the design to Gift-olution so that the artist may make a counter-notification pursuant to Section 512(g)(2) and (3) of the DMCA.
Please refer to the following detailed instructions which must be followed to protect your rights under the DMCA.
Notice and Takedown Procedure - Reports and Complaints
Instructions for Copyright Owners
Gift-olution will respond to notifications that contain the following:
The complaining party or authorized agent thereof should file the notification by contacting Gift-olution at http://giftolution.boutique/pages/contact-us
Upon receipt of a complete notification, Gift-olution will remove or disable access to the design that is claimed to be infringing from the Gift-olution website. The independent artist who submitted the design will be forwarded a copy of the notification and will be alerted that access to the design has been removed or disabled.
Instructions for Independent Artists
Any complaining party or authorized agent thereof following the procedures above can require Gift-olution to remove or disable access to copyrighted content. When Gift-olution receives a proper notification from a complaining party or authorized agent thereof, Gift-olution will immediately comply. This is a legal requirement; you will not receive advance warning and you will not be given an opportunity to “fix it” first.
If you are found to repeatedly submit infringing designs, your account will be suspended. Serious offenders will have their account deactivated and will be permanently banned from submitting designs. Gift-olution considers “three strikes” as an indication of being a serious offender. In addition, if you are found deliberately misrepresenting the copyrighted work of another as your own, your account will be immediately deactivated and you will be permanently banned from submitting designs.
Gift-olution will respond to counter-notifications that contain the following:
The responding party or the authorized agent thereof should file the notification by contacting Gift-olution at http://giftolution.boutique/pages/contact-us
